The clocks are a changing – energy usage goes up!
Getting up in the dark, then coming home from work in the dark certainly isn’t any good for your vitamin D levels, or your bank balance, as energy usage starts shooting up as soon as the clock go back. Your heating system is obviously the main culprit when it comes to energy use, so making sure that’s well serviced is a must. Next on the list are your lights; with shortening daylight hours all our lights will be on a lot longer, consuming yet more money. Halogen GU10 down-lights can easily been seen as energy efficient – due to their small size – unfortunately they aren’t that good when compared to modern LED replacements. The brightness and the prices of LED lights have improved dramatically over the past year, making them a great energy saving option for any home. See our energy saving video for more details.
